Foam Roller Exercises for Adductor Muscles
There are certain areas of the body people often forget to use their foam roller on, and the adductors are no exception. Adductor muscles are located along the inner thigh, and if they become too tight, they draw your thighs together, inhibiting range of motion and mobility in the hip area. Luckily, using a vibrating foam roller can help with this. Rolling exercises are most effective when undertaken both before activity (during warm up) and during cool down after training. Foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release, helping to manipulate tight areas in the adductors and soften the connective tissue surrounding the muscles. The lightweight and portable nature of the rollers means they can be used anywhere, including the gym, injury rehab clinic and at home. There are two exercises which are great when foam rolling adductors, and this video shows a movement which involves keeping the leg straight as you use the roller under the thigh.
